Big thanks Graham , coming from you thats a real compliment . Thought id show you what else ive been up to ,
Some of you may remember I got hold of a front centre console made specifically for an Imp , I never liked it in the front but when butchered beyond believe the very front part did fit in the back under the rear seat .
This was the last image i left you with probably a year ago now in a "part finished not quite sure what to do now state " :lol:

Image

Anyway I still wasnt happy as I wanted it to look like a factory piece , so as well as adding the wood I also added some bits of Chamois stainless trim on the console and on the rear seat shelf , also added a bit of carpet and an old Rootes badge as well as cover the shelf in black vinyl.
It now looks like this , finished about 6 months ago but never posted on here

Image

Image

Rootes bulb and box lives in it as a spare . :lol:

That looks a good site, Moose !

Dave, I have a pair of weird halogen bulbs that I got with a second hand H4 conversion set from a local club member a few years back. They give out a light which seems to have some UV in it because it picks out white items, such as signage and the road markings, very well indeed. I can never remember what they are, but I'd buy a new set in a flash. Perhaps Ian G-R (supersport on here and the original seller) might recall and read this thread sometime. The Night Tech ones on the PIAA website look good though if your in a hurry. :D

For a good while now my Austin 1100 expansion bottle has had a slight leak , try as I might I couldnt find another one anywhere so have finally gone for the same as the Vusky and fitted a Triumph Stag one , clear view and takes an Imp rad cap , you can buy new brackets as well as the bottles ( which are expensive BTW ) but in typical Noddy style i made my own.

Fially managed to get it outside in daylight for a proper look , made up some covers for the rear wheel hubs and then went up my local friendly garage and borrowed their beam setter for the Cibie headlights.
Rear wheels are proper old school genuine Allycats made by Twogate wheels , Fronts are slightly later and although still cast Allycats between the wheelnuts they arnt marked Twogate wheels .Allycats made now are unmarked beween the wheelnuts and are just plain


Have a couple daylight shots

Hi noddy wheels look good. I beleive all imps are built out of square. If you check the gap between the tyre and both rear wheel arches, you may find that the lh side tyre is almost touching or will touch on full bump, the wheel arch edge, wheras the os has 6mm plus of gap!. This is where the shim between the rear suspesion crossmember and the body comes in to correct this!

I still have, and have refitted this on the hartwell imp. (yes I have done a lot of jobs on it, but am too scared to post any pictures in case you guys find fault!) :oops:

Image
Found this shim in the rear suspension

However from looking at this picture, I see that this car has the shim on the rh side, which means I now need to remove my rear suspension and refit it to the other side Dooh!

Other mostly late imps need a shim on the lh side, all I'm saying is that you may need to adjust the rear toe, with a shim to get the tyres to clear the arches! (but it may not be a problem with your ride height any way!) It was on the sport, so I sold the 7" wheels!

Il have a measure Jeff , both wheels have new tyres and the sills and rear arches are original on both sides so this measurement should in theory be fairly accurate
Wheres the best place to measure from , im guessing the front of the rear tyre to the sill at the bottom :?:

EDIT , Ive just measured from the swage line on the rear wing that runs level with the sill to the tyre and the gap is 18mm on both sides .

Its the gap at the top of the wheel arch, approx at the 2 o clock position on the ns, and the 10 o clock on the os

4mm, Thats not too bad! and its the other way to the later imps. It confirms the shim in the suspension is needed on the drivers side on the early cars!

What you need to do is set up a string front to rear on the car. Do this with two 6' bars front and rear. mark the centres on the two bars and then anothe mark near the ends, measuring the same so you can run a string down both sides. You can then measure the rear toe, and track, and see what you need to shim to get the car straight.equi distance from the centre line, along the wheel centres, to adjust the the rear toe, you either shim the outer bolt holes to toe it out, or the inner ones to toe it in!, or both on one side to correct the cars length. (these cars were built in scotland after all! :lol: )

Thats a relieve ,
After fitting the late type front suspension on it years ago I had the car laser tracked where they check all 4 wheels and the front to rear tracking is almost perfect and although i cant remember the exact figure it was less than 1 degree out , as the gap at the bottom ( my previous measurement ) is the same both sides at 18mm does this not mean that its tracked OK but that the whole lot needs shifting over to the passengers side 2mm .
Il get some string and have a play though just for another look.
all 4 tyres wear evenly and it doesnt pull to the left or right if you drive no handed or when you brake .
They are complicated shells thats for sure ,
Ive never had the rear suspension crossmember off so ive no idea if its shimmed or not.
What say you Sire . :)

This suspension setting explains I think something that had puzzled me for years.
At one time I had two Imps on road that were less than a year apart but one always handled better than other. Since then a relative with a garage found a certain other mass production car often had unequal settings at rear wheels . Replacing unadjustable control arms with some specially made adjustable ones transformed the handling. Same guy 4 wheel tracked 87 Corolla I was by then running as a daily, and rear supension was a couple of mm out one side,which when adjustment was re set made a noticeable improvement

Just done the finishing touches to the Allycats , that is wheel centres , these are difficult to get and fairly expensive so ive made the rears and modded some old Allycat caps for the front , the metal hub cap is a pain to put centres over but ive sorted it . :D
Some reverse image stickers were made by the genius sticker maker on this very forum for the centres as I wanted a white cat not a black cat :lol: .

Very, very nice wheels, really suit the car. Refreshing change from Minilites and Revolutions.

If I can just get in before someone beats me to it, the centre cap looks a tad crooked. image should be in line with the wheels nuts, either + or x is fine. Sorry, but now your number plate light screws are properly aligned the rest of the car has to follow that high standard! :wink:

Most mass-produced vehicles are built out of square, will go unnoticed until the body is put under
the microscope and scrutinised many years later. The issue won't always show in the same area ether. Here it's a discrepancy at opposing wheelarches, on a different make the windscreen apertures won't be uniform. Some will get junked before the end of the line, but a lot get overlooked. Nothings perfect. Not even an Imp.
